    Get there at least 10 mins early, grab a drink at their bar, and don't be the last in line to get in the theater. It's an intimate auditorium and usually open seating!

    Pete Wentz calls this his favorite movie theater because it's quirky and different with a little bit of a history. Bank robber John Dillinger was killed here by the FBI in 1934.
